Patients Be Alert!

We want you to be an informed traveler

If you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant you should be aware of the Zika Virus alert in countries in Central, Latin or South America.

Zika virus is mosquito borne and can be spread from a pregnant woman to her unborn baby. There have been reports of very serious effects on developing babies.

The CDC has some excellent information at the following links:

Summary of Updated Guidance:

  • Antibody testing for Zika virus is now recommended for all pregnant women who have traveled to an affected area regardless of the presence of clinical illness.
  • Antibody testing for Zika virus is now recommended for all pregnant women living in an affected area regardless of the presence of clinical illness.
  • Health care providers should discuss reproductive life plans, including pregnancy intention and timing, with women of reproductive age in the context of the potential risks associated with Zika virus infection.
  • Women of reproductive age with current or previous laboratory-confirmed Zika virus infection should be counseled that there currently is no evidence that prior Zika virus infection poses a risk of birth defects in future pregnancies.

Prevention Guidance:

  • Avoiding exposure is best. Pregnant women should delay travel to areas where Zika outbreaks are ongoing when possible. Women considering pregnancy should discuss with their obstetric providers the advisability of travel. See the CDC and PAHO websites for updated lists of affected countries.
  • When traveling to areas where Zika has been reported, women should take all precautions to avoid mosquito bites including the use of EPA-approved bug spray with DEET, covering exposed skin, staying in air-conditioned or screened-in areas, and treating clothing with permethrin.
